First Unitarian Society Meeting House, Madison, WI

The First Unitarian Society needed to expand their facilities to accommodate their growing congregation, however they wished to preserve the integrity of the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed National Historic Landmark Meeting House. The 20,000 sq ft addition provides space for expanded daily needs, exemplifies the congregation’s deeply held environmental values, and reflects Wright’s philosophy of organic architecture.
